You can either use a pre-commit hook to change the author name in the
TXN for the commit or a post-commit hook to change the revprop after
the commit finishes. The pre-revprop-change hook would have to be
enabled and allow you to do the latter.

Using the post-commit hook would be the easiest way and would be how I did it.
